The East Neuk of Fife has been described as "Scotland's Riveria" it consists of beautiful fishing villages such as Pittenween, St. Monans and Anstruther and the lovely coastal villages of Elie, Kingsbarns, Upper Largo and Lower Largo and not forgetting the most famous golfing town of St. Andrews.


Crail was made a Royal Burgh in 1300 by Robert the Bruce and Marketgate which is in the centre was once the largest medieval marketplace in Europe. Crail is steeped in history and Crail Harbour is the most photographed harbour in Scotland. On a Saturday and Sunday there is a small wooden hut beside the harbour where fresh lobster and crab can be bought. There is also a quaint art gallery and coffee shop just a few yards up from the harbour which serves delicious homemade scones served with fresh cream and Jam.

The Golf Hotel which dates back to 1700 is a nice place to go for a pub lunch or dinner. The town has its own Butchers, Bakers and Fruit and Vegetable Shop. It also has two small convenience stores which stock most provisions you will need for your holiday or if you require a greater range or source of produce we recommend several large 'supermarkets' in our information sheets.

There are two art galleries and a pottery shop.

In July there is the Crail Festival which runs from the 20th to the 31st and there are open air concerts, Ceilidh, Sandcastle Competitions and Ghost Walks. In Pittenween which is a 10 minute drive away there is the Pittenween Arts Festival which runs from the 7th to 15th August where local people open up their houses as art galleries for local artists.

Crail lies 10 miles south of St Andrews (shops, cinema, museums, sealife centre, beaches, golf, putting, hotels & restaurants).

The Fife Coastal Path, which stretches for 117 miles, runs from the Forth Estuary in the south, to the Tay Estuary in the north. The path is clearly marked out and offers a range of walking experiences from the easy and flat to more challenging terrain .Whether going for a short stroll or as a long distance route there is definitely something for everyone. From the cosmopolitan atmosphere of St. Andrews to the former coal mining towns of central Fife; from the small fishing villages of the East Neuk to the bustling industrial areas of the west, rugged cliffs, award winning beaches, internationally important estuaries and wildlife reserves and ruined castles walking the Fife Coastal Path is an experience not to be missed!

Whether you are looking for peace and tranquillity or action and adventure the Fife Coastal Path can offer you this and much, much more.Watersports: Elie watersports where you can go water-skiing, Kayaking, Banana Boat rides! The watersports centre also hires wetsuits and mountain bikes.

Tennis: Crail, Elie and Anstruther

Super holiday home

  • 5 of 5

The holiday home was superb and fitted out to an extremely high standard - contemporary yet cosy. The WiFi was strong and secure - a must for our 12 year old! Great little garden which is a real sun trap in the afternoon and location wise - perfect. 10 minute walk to the Fife coastal path which is stunning, and 5 minutes walk into Crail. The bus for St. Andrews stops just outside as well. Another highlight was the table table in the garage - great fun had by all. We loved it!

Very Impressive, the property exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

The property was in an excellent location in the quiet but picturesque village of Crail, being well sited for exploring the area.

It had a modern feel being exceedingly well equipped, very comfortable and tastefully furnished. The convenience of parking outside the front door was a bonus.

The host, Marion, made our arrival very easy providing us with welcoming food essentials even including a bottle of wine.

We would not hesitate to recommend the property to anyone wishing to stay in Fife

What a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, tastefully decorated, accommodations were wonderful but most of all the host was always available if you had any questions. The town of Crail was very quaint, grocery store open even late on a Sunday night and a great place to eat "The East Nuek" had wonderful food. Can even take a nice walk on the slong the boardwalk and get great pictures of Crail coast line. I would definately come back and stay at Marion's home and recommend others to do the same.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with three adult children visiting Crail for a wedding. We absolutely loved this house. Immaculately clean, spacious, charmingly decorated and beautifully light and airy. Everything we could need was provided and made for a fantastic stay. We would thoroughly recommend and were very sad to leave. (And while you are there Crail chip shop does the best chips!)

The ‘East Neuk’ of Fife is one of Scotland’s best-kept secrets. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty and is very popular for coastal and golfing holidays. Crail is approximately 10 miles along the coast from St.Andrews, the home of golf.

Crail is one of the best-preserved East Neuk fishing villages and it has one of the most picturesque harbours in Scotland. But it is more than just a tourists destination; it has a local butcher’s, a traditional greengrocer’s, a fish and chip shop where you can now eat in as well as take away , a whole foods store, and 2 small supermarkets.

There is a family-run pottery, a local museum and the wonderful Crail Harbour Tearoom which is located close to the harbour. It has a sheltered sea-facing terrace and serves delicious lunch and cakes as well as dressed crab from the villages fishing's fleet.

There is also 3 small hotels/bars located within Crail which serve lunch and dinner.

There are three small sandy beaches in Crail . The nearest is Roome bay beach which is only 300m from Seabreeze, while a five minute drive takes you to Cambo Sands near Kingsbarns, which has half a mile of beautiful golden sands.

The Fife Coastal Path runs from North Queensferry (situated next to the Forth Rail Bridge), to Newport-on-Tay which is near Dundee.

This pathway runs along the length of Crail and is only 300 metres from our holiday home. The path, which can be walked in easily managed sections, runs through several nature reserves with great chances to sight seabirds, seals and dolphins.

Anstruther is about 4 miles south of Crail and can be walked to via the Fife Coastal Path. It is home to the Scottish Fisheries museum and the world famous Anstruther fish bar as well as the Cellar restaurant which was recently awarded its 1st Michelin star.

St Andrews is a historic University town as well as being "the home of golf ". It has 2 wonderfully long sandy beaches and has a wide range of restaurants and cafes to try out.

There are seven local golf courses including the most recent Castle course and of course the world renowned 'Old Course '.

Kingsbarns Golf Links is only 2.5 miles from Crail and is one my favourite golf courses and is one of the best in Europe.
